Blog Tour: Review & Excerpt of Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis

Author: Jill Shalvis
Publisher; Avon
Date of publication: January 2017

There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .

Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .

There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as . . .

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .

One of the things that I love about a series is finally getting to the couple I have anticipated the most. I love it even more when the story is so good I devour it in one sitting.  I have wanted to read Elle and Archer's story since they were introduced in the first book, Sweet Little Lies.  In Accidentally on Purpose, the couple finally gets to explore their feelings.

I'm not going to give the plot away.  I'll just say that these two are my favorite couple so far.  I loved their banter.  Loved their passion and their friendship.  Their love story was so much sweeter because they have known each other for a long time. I know their HEA scene was one of the best ones I have ever read.  It was just too cute.  There were also a bunch of laugh out loud moments to enjoy.

This is a really fun series.  I urge you to pick all of them up.  I can't wait for Spence's story coming in the fall.   Want a sneak peek?  Check out the excerpt below.

Excerpt from Accidentally on Purpose:

Elle bent to slip back into her heels.
                Apparently she needed the armor with Archer. Slipping an arm around her waist to give her the support she needed to buckle herself into the FMPs, he waited until she straightened then said, “What the fuck was that?”
                “Me doing my job,” she said in a duh voice.
                “Since when is dirty dancing with a felon your job?”
                She narrowed her fierce eyes. “You told me to get close to him. You told me to ID him and then keep him distracted, whatever it takes.”
                “Okay, no,” he said. “I absolutely did not say whatever it takes.”
                She glared up at him.
                “What?” he asked.
                “Nothing.” Her voice was like ice.
                “Oh boy,” Joe muttered in Archer’s ear. “When a woman says ‘nothing’ in that tone, it most definitely means something and you should be wearing a cup to finish that conversation. Just sayin’.”
                Archer put a finger to his eye before it twitched right out of his head. “I told you to make your exit,” he said to Elle with what he thought was remarkable calm while ignoring Joe, who was a dead man walking anyway. “When I tell you something, Elle, I expect you to listen.”
                He heard a collective sucking in of air through his comms and ignored that too.
                “Wow,” Elle finally said.
                “Okay,” Max piped up. “I have a girlfriend now so I know this one. When Rory says ‘wow’ like that, it’s not a compliment. It means she’s thinking long and hard on how and when I’ll pay for my stupidity.”
                “Agreed,” Joe said. “She’s simply expressing amazement that a man can be such an idiot. Abort mission, boss. I repeat. Abort. Mission.
                Shit. Archer ripped out his earpiece and then did the same to Elle’s, stuffing both in his pocket.
                She shrugged and walked away, leaving him on the dance floor. Watching her go, an odd feeling cranked over in his chest. Irritation, he decided. Frustration. This woman got to him like no one else.
